At West London Pallets we are able to offer our customers ISPM15 Heat Treated Timber Pallets for export in any size and quantity. Our on-site kiln enables us to heat treat large quantities of pallets for dispatch every day.

More and more countries have now joined the ISPM15 initiative ensuring all wooden products are 'heat treated to 56c core temperature for 30mins' before entering its borders.

A product being carried on a wooden crate or pallet can be refused entry and sent back to its original country. Without the proper paperwork to prove it has been heat treated your product will be refused. West London Pallets is a member of Timcon.
